Hi,

I have a sql server 2005 database. The data source is a combination of many tables in access database.

Is it possible to write a query in SQL to extract data from a table in Access and then import some of the tables columns to SQL server?

Thanks in advance

yes and you can use the Import and Export wizard in SQL 2005 to do this.


start sql server management studio
connect to a sql server
browse to a database
right click on  a database
select all task and scroll down to "import data"


your source will be MS access.

I need to make changes to some of the data within the columns and if I use Wizard, I don't have that control. am I correct?
